Assistance League of St. Louis is a fantastic all volunteer organization. We affect all segments of the St. Louis population through our philanthropic programs. We provide new uniform clothing, underwear, and shoes to needy public school children. We distribute activity kits to both children and adults in area hospitals. We give teddy bears to children in emergency situations and gift bags of essential items to women in abused shelters. We serve as a community resource for unmet needs for many individuals and agencies in the area each year. Assistance League of St. Louis is recognized by the Better Business Bureau as a professionally managed non profit organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in the faces on children we dress through Operation School Bell and Steps to Success. I've experienced the gratitude of non profit agencies when we provide goods or services that cannot be covered in their budgets.

Assistance League is an all volunteer nonprofit organization with no paid staff. It is an efficiently and professionally run organization that has obtained the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Allliance seal. Assistance League operates specific ongoing programs to meet specific needs of children and a adults in the St. Louis area. For example, Operation School Bell provides new school uniform clothing for disadvantaged children in area public schools; Project ROSE provides personal items to abused women in local area shelters; and the Outreach program addresses one-time or short-term needs. Assistance League volunteers have ample opportunity for hands-on service in the operation of the programs and also work hard to raise the necessary operating funds.

Over more than 20 years I have seen the faces of the children receiving new clothing for perhaps the first time in their lives and have talked with other recipients and know that our services are needed and appreciated.

This organization has kept pace with technology and continues to grow each year. I would concentrate on researching new fundraising opportunities to enable the organization to grow the curent programs and perhaps add another one. Assistance League is blessed with talented and dedicated volunteers.

This is the most professional organization I have been envolved in! Our programs meet unmet needs in the St. Louis community. Our programs provide uniforms for kids, shoes for kids, personal items for women in abuse shelters, teddy bears for kids and adults in traumatic situations, activity kits for children and adults in hospital settings and help with unmet, short term needs not covered by our other programs.

The smile on a child's face when they are trying on their new clothes or new shoes...that is the most rewarding feeling in the world!

We change with the times and the needs of the community and our organization. This one of the things that makes us strong and vibrant!

ASL of StLouis provides school uniforms for almost 3000 inner city every year (almost 40000 since starting in 1990!). We also provide shoes for about 1500 school children, essentials for several women's shelters, teddy bears for children in crisis, activity packages for children in emergency rooms. All this is done with NO PAID PERSONNEL!
I have been volunteering for 60 years and have never worked with people as dedicated, as caring, and as positive as these women!
